In the heart of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park discover these two spacious holiday cottages, thoughtfully converted from farm buildings using the original old stone and set within an attractive courtyard next to the farm house. The cottages are surrounded by unspoilt countryside and set in a haven of peace and tranquillity, providing a wonderful holiday retreat and an ideal base for friends and family to spend time together and explore Loch Lomond and beyond. Set on a working farm with cattle and sheep, the owner will arrange a private tour of a modern day dairy for guests, by prior arrangement. If you enjoy fishing then complimentary permits are available (by prior arrangement) on the owners private stretch of Endrick River nearby.
